Disability Rights are Civil Rights



YOUR OPINION COUNTS

The Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) needs to hear directly from people who have disabilities, their family members, friends, caregivers and other stakeholders. Your participation in the process is vital and we appreciate your time and consideration in completing this survey.  

The information collected will help to assess how those programs and services are meeting the needs of people who have disabilities living in Michigan.  The following link will take you to the survey.
